The Rich Girls Are Weeping

28 January 2006

It's what every girl wants to see after a long night out on the town -- a secret gift of the Neko Case album, Fox Confessor Brings the Flood. I've been waiting for a recorded version of "Maybe Sparrow" ever since I saw Neko play it about three (four?) years ago, and she confessed to only having finshed writing it earlier that day.

It was worth the wait. And oh, lands, that's Kelly Hogan -- only my favorite, favorite singer of all time (and yes, someday I'll post about her) -- on backing vocals!

I hope you won't mind that I'm about to tell you that I'm literally weeping over how beautiful this is. If you know me personally, you'll know why I so dearly love this song after hearing it.

Neko Case -- Maybe Sparrow

Fox Confessor Brings the Flood will be released on March 7, 2006.
More Neko Case at See You in the Pit.

Neko's new album just leaked this morning. It is stunning. Too early to tell whether it beats Blacklisted, but there is not one disappointing song and several are simply great.

thomas: i swear it wasn't me that leaked it, but i did see it all over *ahem* certain sites by saturday morning, it's true. i came home to find a CDR taped to my front door (seriously!!). no one will fess up, maybe i have a secret admirer!

i think the album is really fantastic -- easily as good as blacklisted,my only complaint is that it's maybe just a little too short... but it's nice to finally have recorded versions of those songs she's been doing live for years now.

Cindy: totally agreed. This album is just a little more self-assured than Blacklisted. And it's a testament to the album's strength that you're left wanting more. Hopefully her next one doesn't take 4 years!
